Evan H. Bernstein, Principal

I am honored to begin my first year serving as the Principal of Little Bennett Elementary School.  

I began my career in education and with the Montgomery County Public Schools as a teacher at Highland Elementary School in Wheaton. I began my career in school administration as an assistant principal at Rolling Terrace Elementary School in Silver Spring. My next administrative assignment was as the Assistant Principal at Flora M. Singer Elementary School in Silver Spring.  In August of 2014, I was named the acting Principal at Forest Knolls Elementary school. I was officially appointed as their Principal in March of 2015 where I worked for eight school years. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in early childhood/elementary education from Frostburg State University and completed my Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction at Loyola College.

Charysse R. Taylor, Assistant Principal

Being the assistant principal of Little Bennett Elementary School since 2016 has been such a wonderful opportunity.  I am looking forward to continuing my work with a dedicated staff and community by providing all students with a positive educational experience through a high-level instructional program.

I received a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Maryland. After graduating college, I quickly realized that education was my true passion, so I earned my Masters of Education degree and teaching certificate at the same time once again at the University of Maryland. I completed my certificate in Administration and Supervision from Hood College.  I began my teaching career at Washington Grove Elementary School teaching second and third grade. I then went on to Great Seneca Creek Elementary School in the capacity of fourth grade teacher, elected faculty representative, team leader and instructional leadership team member. Most recently I was the assistant principal of Greenwood Elementary School for the past three years.
